NEET PG 2022: The Supreme Court today allowed the National Medical Commission (NMC) to extend the last date for admission of NEET PG aspirants. The apex has given time till November 25 to the commission to complete the admission process for postgraduate students.
The decision was taken by a bench comprising Justices DY Chandrachud and Hima Kohli, who said the explanation provided by the NMC is “good faith”.

Meanwhile, the National Board of Examinations in Medical Sciences (NBEMS) recently released the revised cut-off scores for NEET PG 2022 counseling on the official website: natboard.edu.in. The decision to lower the NEET PG cutoff was taken keeping in mind that a large number of seats had fallen vacant in the PG counseling conducted for admissions last year.
